Around the Valley: Family Forest Fair and BBQ Sept. 15 near Brownsville

On September 15, 2012 from 10am to 4:pm the Oregon Woodland Cooperative is hosting a free event for family foresters in the region to learn about income opportunities on their land. President Neil Schroeder says the co-op has recently completed a number of initiatives on value-added timber, nontimber forest products, ecosystem services and other opportunities for the members. The event is a chance to share these accomplishments with the public and to reach out to prospective new members. The event will include information and hands-on demonstrations on firewood bundling, essential oil production, hardwood flooring, medicinal plants, wild foods, figured woods, and other products.  Attendees will have a chance to meet coop members, as well as representatives from OSU College of Forestry, Oregon Department of Forestry and other regional forestry organizations.   There will be activities such as product identification walks and forest sports. All ages are welcome, but most activities will be geared toward adults, as well as teenagers with a strong interest in family forestry.  Lunch is provided.

Space is limited and on a first-come basis so please register as soon as possible at: http://www.orwoodlandco-op.com/owcfair/ Registering online helps us out a lot, is simple and doesn’t require you to create an account.  We really appreciate it!  However, if you don’t have Internet access then you can also call 541-505-1870.
